How to Install Geany IDE on Linux

Geany is a cross-platform, feature-rich full-blown integrated development environment (IDE), that you can get on Linux. One good reason I like using the Geany IDE is because of automatica compiler recognition; once a compiler of a programming language is installed on a PC  you don’t need any further configuration to start using the compiler to write programs. Geany locates the compiler in the system automatically for you. So if you need a very light-weight IDE for most of your programming (especially languages where you need to compile the source code), I would advise you to go for Geany.  Other reasons you should try geany include , but not limited to, the following;  It is lightweight. This is very important as it does not require heavy system resources (like memory). And it loads super fast. Only necessary plugins are packaged with it , even though more plugins can  be downloaded for extended functionalities. It can used for simple text editing and, and as a result of a large number of supported files can be used for any programming purpose as a capable IDE. Geany saves and refreshes sessions automatically. You can continue from whee you stopped working after a close. Popularity. It is commonly found in the software repository of different Linux distributions (distros).
